Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is a growing national grass roots organization advocating for the Parkinson's community. Their web site is very educational about issues concerning NIH funding, FDA drug approval, Medicare and Social Security, and stem cell research. The site has pages that tell the reader more about PAN, about Parkinson's, and about the legislative impact of their presence in Washington D.C. Readers can sign up for PAN's newsletter, for Action Alerts - which are notices of upcoming votes in Congress affecting PD so that you can call or email your Representative or Senator encouraging their support - and they can also get involved with PAN on a more local or statewide level. This is an excellent source of information of a public policy nature. For more information, go to their website listed above, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone: 800-850-4726 or 202-638-4101; fax: 202-638-7257 or send questions to the following address: 1025 Vermont Ave, NW Suite 1120, Washington, DC 20005.
